## Homework Statement

Solve for the current in each branch of the following circuit as a function of time & derive and expression for the time dependence of teh emf of the constant current source in the circuit below.

## Homework Equations

Zc = Xc = 1/(wC) = t/(2pi*C)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I attempted to use the mesh method:

Loop 1:

-1000(i1)+50-(Zc)(i1)+(Zc)(i2)=0

Loop 2

-(Zc)(i2)+(Zc)(i1)-3500(i2)+3500(i3)=0

Loop3:

-3500(i3)+3500(i2)-5000(i3)-V=0

This quickly got confusing when I substituted Zc for t/(2pi*120mF).

I have no idea how to solve this problem when it has both a capacitor and a current source.

I also do not understand what the second part of the question is asking.

I would appreciate any help/insight that you could offer. Thanks.
